About the Program

What We Believe

Engineering is for Everyone.

Engineers are needed Everywhere.

Our mission is to help all K-12 community stakeholders celebrate the “E” in STEM with equitable and empowering learning resources that help students and teachers become engineering enthusiasts. Show K-12 students the mind-blowing ways that engineering is enhancing our lives and fostering to a better future for Earth. Access a variety of interactive, standards-aligned learning resources created in partnership between Discovery Education and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to inspire the next generation of creative thinkers, risk takers, and ethical problem-solvers.

ASME Education Initiatives

ASME is continuously exploring new ways to connect students, educators, and communities to the endless problem-solving potential of engineering. These dynamic educational initiatives celebrate engineering knowledge as a practical tool for self-empowerment and success.


DropMEIn! is a virtual path for bringing engineers into classrooms to share the impact of “problem-solving for good” through the lens of STEM, specifically engineering. Content and discussion during these 30-minute live, online events is led by 1-2 professional engineers and/or engineering students.
